Using LinkedIn to find job offers

Posted on January 15, 2019 at 2:20 pm

If you are in the process of looking for work then you may have heard about how LinkedIn can help you. LinkedIn is a social media site that allows people to create a profile and put on information about themselves, previous work experience, qualifications and skills. You can build up a network on the site of people that you know who can then endorse you for skills, stating that they agree you are skilful in a particular area.
If an employer or agency is looking for potential recruits they may use Linked in to contact people listed with the skill set they are looking for to see if they would be interested in applying. They may also use this to access candidates who apply for jobs with them.
Whether you post anything on social media it is important to remember that it may be looked at in the future by potential employers and they may make assumptions about you based on your profile.
If you are looking for work then you can now set your LinkedIn profile to show that you are open to offers and looking for work. This will make your profile stand out a little to recruiters.
